Necropolis Line is the fifth solo album of evocatively moody electronic music by Cousin Silas, and the first to appear on the Earthrid label. 21 excursions take you from Tetney Marsh to Quarry 9b, from Humberstone to the Mountains of Madness…

“Cousin Silas admits being inspired by the bizarre writings of H.P. Lovecraft, and it’s a thrill to hear a musician really get it right. The sense of dread, suspense and imminent danger is only lifted when clearly intentional – on tracks like ‘Looking Back’ and ‘Leaving Solaris’ – and the album ends on an electronic high note with the title track that truly brings closure to the journey. … a surprising discovery and a fascinating journey, indeed” – Connexion Bizarre (the full review can be read at their Web site).
“An expansive sparkling and twinkling ocean of sound… one of the dreamiest slabs of late night / early morning ambience we’ve heard in ages. So lovely!” – Aquarius Records
